Caroliniana Columns is published semiannually for members and friends of the University South Caroliniana Society.

This is the inaugural issue of Caroliniana Columns. The name initially given this publication was USCS Newsletter, but a competition was immediately held among Society members to find a more suitable name. Numerous suggestions were made and, by issue #2, the name now in use, Caroliniana Columns, was selected.
